Can someone debunk this Time Travel claim?

#1  Postby Kataclysmal » Feb 28, 2018 6:06 pm

So, I came across this youtube video talking about a weird chat going on, on coast to coast am radio. A caller claimed to have time travelled. Here is the video:

I hope someone can debunk this claim. Thanks.

It's bullshit.

There is a difference between claiming something and demonstrating it to be true. That second bit is usually where BS splats against brick wall.
That credulity should be gross in proportion to the ignorance of the mind that it enslaves, is in strict consistency with the principle of human nature. - Percy Bysshe Shelley

I've traveled through time. Admittedly only in one direction and at a rate of one second per second. :(

Try walking - that'll dilate time and you'll end up in the future! Er, a bit. No flux capacitor required.

There isn't much to debunk, it's a story with no evidence that a neutral party can evaluate. Calling bullshit is good enough.
In my opinion one can never return to the past. It's already happaened and won't again. There's no credible evidence to the contrary. If there is I've never heard any, and this story is not it.
Movies like Back to the Future (no matter how awesome) and others portray the past as something that's always occurring. How could that actually be true?
